Leading watch distributor ATOZ Distribution is planning to launch into the jewellery market with its own range of jewellery and cuff links.
The jewellery will be launched under the Kennett brand, which was set up by ATOZ Distribution founder Tom Kennett in 2009. It is a sister company to ATOZ and is now represented by the distributor in the UK.
The “debut samples” of its jewellery designs will be available for the trade to see firsthand at the forthcoming IJL show, where the company will exhibit for the first time. It will also unveil the latest Kennett watch models.
“We are looking forward to introducing retailers to the brands at IJL, kick-start some meaningful partnerships and take solid orders at the show,” said Mr Kennett.
ATOZ will use the show to launch three new watch brands, including French affordable luxury brand Rene Mouris, and two children’s watch brands, Trendy Kids and Lulu Castagnette.
It is the first time that any of these brands have been made available in the UK.
ATOZ Distribution has recently strengthened its back office team at its headquarters in Glasgow, where the company now has the infrastructure to pack and ship more than 400 watches a day.
